Labiaplasty Candidates

By The Landings Surgical Centre on February 15, 2018


Many women are curious about labiaplasty, a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess tissue and contours the appearance of the labia. This is a sensitive issue for many women, causing feelings of embarrassment for some. At The Landings Surgical Centre in Halifax, NS, our surgeons are compassionate and discreet, and can provide labiaplasty for qualifying patients. During a private consultation, we can discuss the procedure and the qualifications necessary for labiaplasty candidates.

 

Reasons to Choose Labiaplasty

Most women who undergo labiaplasty do so because they are concerned about the aesthetics of their genitals. Most commonly, our patients are dissatisfied with large, oversized, or asymmetrical labia minora. Although these features are simply variations of normal, some women feel self-conscious or unhappy about their appearance. This can lead to significant concerns with body image and concerns with intimacy and sexual intercourse.

 

Another common reason that some women pursue labiaplasty is to reduce or eliminate discomfort. In some cases, the size of the labia can cause physical pain in the area. For example, exercising, using tampons, or having sex can cause various levels of soreness for some women.

Who is a Candidate for Labiaplasty?

As is the case with any surgical procedure, candidates for labiaplasty should be in good health, and should have no medical issues that pose potential risks or complications. Additionally, patients should be at least 18 years old and have a clearly defined reason for wanting to undergo labiaplasty. When you visit our practice for an initial consultation, our doctors will perform a full assessment and review your medical history in detail to make sure labiaplasty is a viable treatment option. In certain cases, patients under 18 may be approved for surgery if discomfort is the primary motivation for the procedure.

Who is Not a Candidate for Labiaplasty?

There are certain instances in which women should not undergo labiaplasty. This includes women who:

  • Have unrealistic expectations for their results
  • Are currently pregnant
  • Smoke or use tobacco
  • Have a sexually transmitted disease
  • Are predisposed to surgical complications

Risks and Benefits of Labiaplasty

Anytime you undergo a surgical procedure, there is a small chance of infection or other complications. However, by closely following the doctor’s guidelines, we can help you significantly reduce these risks.

During your visit at our practice, we will discuss your potential treatment with you in detail, including the procedure itself as well as pre- and post-op instructions. It is also important that you understand the healing process, so you can take adequate time from work, intense exercise, and sexual intercourse. By knowing what to expect before, during, and after your treatment, you should be able to enjoy a predictable and successful recovery.

Other Considerations

Before undergoing any type of plastic surgery, it is important to thoroughly discuss your aesthetic goals as well as your overall health and expectations following the procedure. We want our patients to be completely comfortable with their decisions. That is why we take plenty of time with each patient to answer any questions and address any concerns.
